I want to learn how to draw better

Someday I want to make things as pretty and communicative as Mike Rohde’s sketchnotes, Erica Glasier’s blog posts, Franke James’ visual essays. I want to capture scenes like those in urban sketches.

I want to be able to see more clearly, imagine more vividly, and create more expressively.  Looking forward to making a habit of drawing. It’ll be fun!

  • Aw, thanks, Sacha! My mom says she couldn’t get me to do anything but colour when I was a little kid.

    Making a habit of drawing is the ONLY way to get there, but fortunately it IS extremely fun.

    I too wish I drew better – but as I tell my GT students creativity is not about drawing – it’s about ideas and you have great creativity! I love your blog and have forwarded several entries on to friends and family. Thank you for introducing me to Franke James. I will be sharing several of these post with my GT students next year!

  • wooooot! Me… I want to draw stuff as pretty and communicative as Sacha Chua’s doodles. :)

  • I’m getting better at drawing, and I enjoy it more. =) Funny how that works out! I doodle during slow moments in meetings, and I experiment with interesting things to draw for presentations…

    jehzlau: Drawing is fun to learn. Enjoy!

  • Wow that’s great! I think I’m getting better as well. Look at how I improved my Blue Stickman doodles from year 2008 to year 2009. :D

    And oh, please feel free to criticize my doodles so that I can improve my work. ^__^

  • <laugh> Your drawings are terrific, and they fit into your site very well. Do you have a blog post about how you draw (and how you customize the font on your blog to match)? =) If not, you should write about that!

  • woooooooot! Great post idea! I don’t have a post about it yet. O__O. I draw using my laptop’s trackpad, sometimes with my desktop’s mouse :D

    I created my own TTF and used it in my blog. :D A lot of websites posted about it already of how to use custom fonts in your website, but I guess I will write about it as well. The new font style in my blog’s post titles (Jehzlau Concepts True Type Font) was just implemented yesterday. Haha :D

    I’m actually writing a post about my new custom font now.. :P

    • True, but it’s always good to hear, of the many different ways you’ve tried, which works well for you. =)

      I’ve been meaning to make a font sometime, too…

  • Yay! great! My post for ways to create custom fonts is almost finish! Looking forward for you to be my first reader, as my readers in the Philippines are asleep right now. Hahaha :D

  • Hi Sacha! Here’s my post about the custom font. I just published it a few seconds ago. :D
